Cboe: What Are Index Options And Why Should Traders Use Them?

Arianne Adams, Senior Vice President, Head of Derivatives and Global Client Services at Cboe Global Markets, Inc. CBOE, was recently interviewed by Benzinga.

Cboe Global Markets is a leading provider of market infrastructure, operating in 26 markets globally, and offers trading in options, futures, equities, FX, digital assets and more for retail investors. The company has long been an innovator in financial products.

Index options are among these innovative products offered by Cboe. In short, they are derivative contracts that give the owner the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell the value of an underlying index at a specific price with a specific expiration date.

Index options are growing in popularity. And for good reason. They offer traders many advantages, such as cash settlement and no risk of early exercise (European exercise). To learn more about the advantages of index options, watch the full interview here:
